Tasting notes

2014 RUBY LEIGH MERLOT BLEND:
Ruby Leigh is a gorgeous ballet, offering a simultaneously loamy and creamy mouthfeel, seamless layers of red and black currant, cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit, and a long, smoke laced finish that features lovely hints of black tea and incense. The fruit and earth shine in this broad, deep and defined style. Anise and tobacco notes fill out the finish, which expands steadily with air, showing added range and echoes of bittersweet cocoa and tobacco. Destined for a remarkable long, expressive life. The wine too.

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Ruby Leigh is an extraordinary young lady, gifted of many artistic and conceptual talents. Hers is a spirit from the wild places in the cosmos, restless and searching for light and experience. One of the Three Original Wines, it has, since its inception in 2004, been driven by merlot and cabernet franc, supported by malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Like our daughter, each vintage of Ruby Leigh is a classic, lovely and vibrant in its youth and undoubtedly astounding in its evolution.
